“Honest and Friendy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013

I traveled to Ioannina for business reasons so I chose to stay at Vyzantio hotel because of its location, near the center but quite away from all the noise of the town. The room was clean and recently renovated with a nice hydro massage shower! Even If you travel for business reasons check out the breakfast buffet, It has a great variety with hot and cold items! Humble and honest hotel and just 40e in the end! Totally recommended!

Room Tip: Chose a room at the front

It's cheap but you also have to mention that it's not the cleaniest hotel, although it looks clean!!

The only reason you'd want to stay here is to save money.
PLUSES.
PARKING. Its own parking lot right next to the hotel.
QUIET. Edge of town.
WARM. Although wet and chilly outside, in the room we were warm.
BREAKFAST. Generous (typical) cold breakfast buffet. Warm bacon/weiners/boiled eggs.
MINUSES.
BUILDING Old, very unkept, internally and externally. Very narrow, depressing interior halls.
BATHROOM. Shower curtain that swung across half of the bathroom including both the toilet and low, open shower stall - so it offered no sprinkle-protection at all, ensuring that the bathroom floor got drenched when showering (and thus water got tracked all over the room). Cracked sink/old toilet. Cracked wooden door frames. Bathroom window with 'blinds' adjacent to the next room's bathroom - so experienced their sounds/water splashing.
BED. Double bed very small.
Another person on this site comments on the staff - the receptionist kindly came with me to seek a better shower-curtain situation; unfortunately, as he'd predicted, we didn't find one.
Also, our friend in the next room observed: noisy central heating in the middle of the night; their blow dryer and fridge were not working.

Room Tip: Ask for one facing the back, for more quiet.

Nothing fancy. The balcony was pretty ratty, but we had a good view of the active little town intersection and the beautiful mountain behind it. Street noise came through the windows, but it wasn't bad. The breakfast was fine. The room was average. Bed was uncomfortable. The front desk staff were nice, though acted kinda strange? The price was right.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the back side to avoid street noise.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2009

During our Greece trip in August 09 we stayed in triple rooms of four different hotels and had very nice experiences in all but one: Byzantio Hotel in Ioannina!
It had the best price online and seemed to be clean and comfortable on the photos. But in reality, the waste bin in the bathroom wasn't even emptied before we checked in the room. There was a newspaper on the bedstand left by the previous customer. And worst of all, the toilet flush wasn't working and the toilet wasn't clean. We had to call the reception two times the first night and once the next morning to have the flush fixed again and again. Neither the receptionists nor the handyman who tried to fix the flush said sorry. Not even once. On the opposite, they acted as if it was our own fault that the flush wasn't working. The next morning we wanted to change the room and did so. In the second room, the flush was OK but at night we realized that the A/C was not functioning.
It was impossible to log in to our e-mail accounts using the PCs in the lobby. So most of the facilities of this hotel were not in working order.
The staff (except a young man at the reception) was rude. They never even smiled once.
In addition to these cons, the hotel is quite far from the city center.
